Is Asantehene Really the Overlord of Asanteman According to the Proofs Hereby Exhibited?
Who is an Overlord, one may ask? By the Oxford dictionary, an Overlord is a person of great power or authority. Otumfuo Osei Tutu II is claimed to be the Overlord of Asanteman. Is he really an Overlord with great power to do as he wants when he wants? Although he claims to wield immense power in Ghana to the extent that whatever decision he makes, no court in Ghana can overturn it regardless of how preposterous the decision may be.
If indeed he has such sweeping powers, then it presupposes that he controls the entirety of the lands and the subjects of Asanteman. Am I right? In the mid 20th Century until today as I write, there is enough evidence to prove that no Asantehene has the authoritative powers as being claimed, and criminally exercised, by the current Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
From the web link below, he once caused Kumawu stool lands to be surveyed for all dubious reasons. This is because Kumawuhemaa Nana Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah, a queen without sense and without love for her locality and the subjects but her selfish insatiable greed, has collusively teamed up with him to exploit Kumawuman resources to the hilt since the demise of Barima Asumadu Sakyi II.
If Asantehene has such powers, why then is it that Atebubu and Duayaw Nkwanta have pulled out of Asanteman under his watch with the chiefs daring him to step on their lands if he were brave and they would drastically deal with him? He has not been able to use his said powers to force them back into the Asanteman Council. They have left and gone for good!
It is just that the Presidents, governments and the legal system in Ghana are weak and corrupt to allow him to get away with blue murder but not that he has the powers that he arrogates to himself.
Because of the self-explanatory evidence I am attaching to this publication, I shall end here but not until I have asked you the public readers, to be judges for yourselves regarding the status of Asantehene and his needless overrating of himself and by certain people in Asanteman.
I have different copies of bound evidential documents running into several pages at a time that I can pass on to some selected people interested in knowing Kumawu history and the Ceremonial status of Asantehene within Asanteman contrary to his machismo claims of superiority and powerfulness.
The late Kumawuhene, Barima Asumadu Sakyi II once rebuffed his crafty attempts to avail himself of Kumawu stool lands by conniving with Kwamanghene in contravention of Supreme Court verdicts in favour of Kumawu. See the proof below. Why should we by our prostrating actions and cowardice create human monsters and corrupt people? I weep for my country Ghana and the ordinary poor and needy persons therein.
Below is a letter from the late Kumawuhene Barima Asumadu Sakyi II, rebuffing Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
